Chris Barrie, Paul Ross and Michael Barrymore
I reckon that's why he started shoplifting
P.s. A really think Barrymore deserves a re-evaluation. Funny, beserk. Always seemed like a fascinatingly conflicted individual.
He was doing Stewart Lee before Stewart Lee had become 'Stewart Lee''
I rememeber on one Strike It Rich or whatever there was this old couple and the man was really ill and Barrymore just had him cracking up in tears the whole thing and his wife said he hadn't had such fun in years. Heartwrenching stuff Lynn
Seemed like a proper good bloke. Loads of those kind of presenters are mental though. Roy walkers completely insane, that guy who was a childrens presenter whos girlfriends overdosed. Vague allusions to celebrity seem to break people
That the public are outraged and don't want to see them on TV anymore.
For me, at least, the complete opposite is true.
I LOVE BARRYMORE
Stewart Lee thing but Barrymore has always been proper creepy as well
But I think that's what gives him his edge.
The dwarf who was in Willow.
Saw a documentary about him recently on BBC 2 called 'Life Is Too Short'. He bought hiself a new washing machine but threw away the new one rather than the old one by accident, felt really sorry for him as he was having money trouble due to the lack of work he was getting and he probably couldn't afford to get another washing machine. Not sure how he washed his clothes after that, maybe in the bath.
saw him haggling down the price of a dyson in colchester a couple of months back
I'm pretty sure he doesn't give a fuck - altho sounds like a sharp operator if he can haggle successfully on the high street.
Seems like a Henry man all the way. As per any legit human.
Still on top form.
One of the remaining GREAT MINDS.
He was sitting on a bin lid when there was a perfectly good seat right next to him.
Thinks of it as a bit of a coup too.
there's a bit in it where, as he delivers another line of nonsensical and awful dialogue, you can pretty much see the light behind his eyes go out
'britain's greatest machines with chris barrie' for national geographic. sounds fine to me.
he's past the height of his fame but i don't think it's that bad. i'd rather do that than wipe arses for a living
i would imagine he'll be pretty happy about that
absolutely no one else is.
good film. That gets him a pass from me.
Looked like he was having the time of his life.
I was going to say this, but then I thought that she was more famous at the end than at any other point in her life.
Look what he has produced!
Maybe not, but he's gotta be loving the relatively easy dollar of 8outof10cats life right now.
Pretty sure he's not got any real gripes.
or I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here in the past three years.
He is set to earn £8m from work offers and endorsements alone.
after representing England at Italia 90.
At least he's doing better than Gazza.
No matter what happens furTHer down the track, when you're on one of those shows you've got a big flashing neon sign over your head saying "Career in freefall: desperate and will submit to any humiliation".
The ones that make me shudder are the ones you see every now & then doing adverts for vitamins or cat food, still grinning but with big sad eyes, you think "Oh look, it's that one who lasted a few weeks on Big Brother or Masterchef about seven years ago". Pretty certain that in most cases it's next stop poo porn.
Won the Oscar in '97 but since Pearl Harbour he's only been in utter shit with the possible exceptions of the 5 seconds he's in American Gangster and Shadowboxer which is so fucking horrendous it's actually brilliant.
or any other former professional footballer who ends up doing a menial job. Probably isn't a postman anymore anyway..
no, seriously. sure, he's mega loaded and that little band he was in during the sixties are almost universally loved and respected, but it must piss him off that lennon is regarded as the radical one and paul the conservative businessman when the inverse is true in most cases (except for, perhaps, revolution 9). even as late as 1965, lennon was still fond of saying "avant garde is french for bullshit", while mccartney had been immersing himself in musique concrete, free jazz, modern classical and electronic experimentation since their days gigging in germany.
in the decades since (although i quite like the fireman stuff).
Can't be all bad.
Should have stayed at Everton.
In the negative column, he has been pounded by "a barrage of criticism". It is not David Cameron who has been burnt in effigy by protesting students. It is not George Osborne who has had dog shit poured through his letterbox. It is not William Hague who gets sworn at when he takes to the streets of his constituency. For opponents of the coalition, it is Nick Clegg who is the magnet for loathing. That has got to be tough for a politician who liked it when he was liked.'
It's taken from this article:
No one seems to attack Cameron. It's weird.
He has had it in the neck, mostly justafiably, but sometimes not. Seeing him on the Andrew Marr show the other day, I think he just gave the impression he hates himself for joining the coalition.
Re. shotgun marriage with David Cameron...I think he now regrets not putting the gun in his own mouth.
